Pros
  • Great benefits, yearly bonus with shares in the company, and exposure to corporate pharma (in 8 reviews)

  • If you increase market share you will get rewarded very nicely with their bonus structure they have in place (in 7 reviews)

Cons
  • There is absolutely NO consideration for work/life balance (in 4 reviews)

  • It can be seen as a result of their high turnover rate of their employees (in 5 reviews)

    Pros

    If you make it here, you can make it anywhere. It is a real pharmaceutical job and they take people with no previous pharma experience.

    Cons

    High pressure management tactics, poor sales training, and scummy corporate culture. Not willing to invest in real sales training.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some sales industry experts that can polish new hires with little or no experience do that they can hit the ground running with greater success.

  3. Very money focused, poor staff satisfaction and little career progression.

    Pros

    Nice office in the UK next to Brooklands race track.
    Small company so you get to join the dots more easily if you want to (the UK company is about 50 people all in 1 open office area)

    Cons

    Company was extremely money conscious (seemed a very cold company - interest in staff satisfaction seemed non-existent) and lots of people were contractors. There wasn't a very good atmosphere and people seemed down trodden. Staff turnover was high. I didn't look forward to work, feedback always seemed to be negative (as if management were deliberately trying to put staff down). Traffic to the UK office is extremely bad, I wouldn't accept a job unless flexitime was offered. Some aspects of the company seemed unpleasant - there were some concerns about drugs being priced low to increase market share and then prices jacked up once patients were dependent.

    Advice to Management

    Give attention to staff satisfaction - have regular staff satisfaction surveys.
    Conduct 360 reviews of managers - there was a lot of unreasonable pressure put on subordinates and senior managers seemed to not care.
    Address any ethics concerns - have anonymous surveys to find out any concerns people have.

    Pros

    I never worked for a company that gave stock and bonuses to the general working stiffs. That was something that really made the employees feel like the company valued them. Also the Medical Benefits were the absolutely affordable at 50 dollars a month for an entire family! 401K Matching!

    Cons

    No longer a company. Actavis acquired Warner Chilcott and terminated almost every Warner Chilcott employee.
